Paul is doing more to revitalize the Comedy scene than anyone else in America. It's great to hear him being interviewed, to see him being recognized. And Billy doesn't suck either.

Nice to see Paul interviewing people with talent. Too bad that's the closest he'll ever get to having any himself.

I'm not sure how far down the "comedy theft" route you want to go, but is Carlos Mencia the biggest joke thief out there today?

Are comedy clubs dead and, if so, what killed them?
